Help raise public awareness

Talking to the media about epilepsy is a valuable way of helping to increase public awareness. Would you be willing to talk to the press about your experiences of epilepsy? You can help us raise awareness by volunteering as a media contact and sharing your story.

What we need

We’re looking for people who could talk to journalists about epilepsy.  Journalists may want to interview someone who comes into a specific category – for example, someone of a particular age, gender or occupation, or who has a particular type of seizure.

We keep details of our media contacts on file and will always check with you before putting a member of the press in touch.  We may also ask your permission to include your story on our website.

To become a media contact, please complete our online form.

What happens next

Don’t worry if you don’t hear from us straight away.  We’ll keep your details on file and we’ll be in touch if we’d like to use your story.

Be assured that we will never pass on your details to the media without contacting you first.

 

Volunteer

There are so many ways to volunteer and make a difference to the lives of people affected by epilepsy. Whether you'd like to volunteer at our Chalfont Centre, or in your local community, we'd love to hear from you.

Volunteering at Chalfont

We have a huge range of rewarding volunteering opportunities at our Chalfont Centre in Buckinghamshire. The volunteers at Epilepsy Society make an invaluable difference to the lives of the 92 residents who live on site, all of whom have epilepsy often as part of more complex needs.
